  3. Thanks, I was so happy to see it bloom. When the Dahlias first came up I wondered if they would have time.

    1. Thanks, Neesie. I hope the asters will grow in my garden. All my old asters mysteriously disappeared...

  10. The Dahlia was stunning. I love them but I never get them "right".
    I would like to have the blue ones in my garden.
    Have a nice day :)

    1. My Dahlia would do better if I dug it, I will have to do it this fall and then I should get flowers earlier next year.

    1. Thank you, I like Dahlias if they weren't so hard to grow, needing to be dug over winter.

  14. Beautiful colors for the garden! The dahlia is a lovely yellow orange.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog-I use Photoshop to create the special effects-and it really is easy-there are different filters to choose and play with.

    1. Thanks, I like the orange center. I have an old version of Photoshop which probably means I lack all the cool filters. I tried some out and was not very impressed.

  15. And the winner is ....drumroll please the Dahlia for me too! I really wanted to suggest one of the others as the Dahlia seems to be the most popular but with the raindrops it is simply stunning - you are a clever photographer!

    1. Thanks, rain is pretty easy to find around here now, since the rainy season started. One year it rained every day from fall to spring. It does keep the temperatures higher since clouds act like insulation.

  16. Wow, so cool and pretty flowers!
    Nice post.

    1. Thanks, at least some flowers will be around until frost, it's hard to know here when that will be, one year it was December 20!

  17. They really are all lovely...but my favourite is the orange one...and those droplets of water really make it magical. Thanks for sharing on Mandarin Orange Monday #62.

  18. Thanks, Lorik, I just wish I could do magical things with filters like you do.

    1. Yes, I haven't had that one before, usually they sell New England Asters in the fall, all of mine disappeared after years of blooming faithfully.;-(

  21. Thanks, Dahlias are wonderful, especially if they can live in the ground over winter.
